Bee Gees Documentary Production

The first ever authorized documentary feature about the legendary band The Bee Gees has been announced. The documentary feature, which is authorized by Barry Gibb and the families of Maurice Gibb and Robin Gibb, will be presented and fully financed by Polygram, Capitol Records and UMPG, and directed by Academy Award nominated Frank Marshall who will produce the film with multiple-Grammy Award-winning producer Nigel Sinclair.

The documentary, which will have complete access to all the Bee Gees archives, seeks to reveal the character of the Bee Gees as a group and as individuals, as well as the magic and mystery of their musical genius. It will explore the, sometimes unsung, nature of the band’s brilliance, their astonishing songwriting prowess, and their distinctive ability to connect with each cultural era – while always returning to the same emotional core: the remarkable relationship between three extraordinarily talented brothers.

Mark Monroe will serve as lead writer, with Cassidy Hartmann serving as a consulting writer on the project. Aly Parker will serve as supervising producer. The creative team will be joined by editor Derek Boonstra (The Hunting Ground) and co-editor Robert Martinez (The Beatles: Eight Days A Week).

Barry Gibb commented “I have had an incredibly fortunate life and think back to the good times with my beloved brothers with a huge sense of awe. And time gives us all a chance to look back and celebrate with a new perspective. I know our family is in excellent hands with Frank, Nigel and the talented team of filmmakers behind the documentary. I am eternally grateful and excited to be able to share our unique journey with audiences around the world.”

“Among the greatest songwriters of a generation, Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb created a catalogue of songs that are incomparable,” said Gerson. “Through the vision of our legendary director Frank Marshall and with the support of our trusted partners Capitol Records, Nigel Sinclair and Polygram Films, we’re thrilled to share the Bee Gees’ incredible story and legacy of music with fans around the world.”

Frank Marshall commented: “I have long admired the extraordinary rich talent of the Bee Gees, and I am looking forward to working with Barry, as well as Dwina and Yvonne, to tell this powerful story. I am delighted to be working with Nigel, Mark, Jeanne and the great team we have put together and grateful for the support of all the folks at UMG.”

Nigel Sinclair added: “This is a story of how three brothers with paramount musical gifts created music that touched the collective unconscious across five continents for five decades straight. It is brotherhood and family, creativity, entertainment, joy, and tragedy. We all feel very privileged to be involved.”

    Wow I can’t wait to see my favourite band on the big screen. I had the opportunity to see Barry live during Mythology Tour, so this will be great

      I too am looking forward to this huge event of one of my most beloved groups in history. However, I didn’t see any “coming to theaters” announcement or any dates at all that we can expect to actually see this Documentary. Any information will be appreciated. In addition, I just want to send a heartfelt thank you to Barry, Maurice’s wife and Robin’s wife and their families, as well as, to all the professional talent stepping in to make this Documentary the best it can be. About time!!

    Is there any time frame on when, how and where this will be announced. I missed the opportunity to seeing them in person so I definitely don’t want to miss this documentary. Thank You for doing this. His fans are so desperately waiting for this. Love the Bee Gees. So happy Barry is carrying on the torch as long as he can.

    Que bueno algo muy esperado de nuestros Bee Gees.. No me lo quiero perder, no tuve el gusto de admirarlos, soy de la época de Andy pero después me interesé mucho y me gustan hasta hoy sus canciones, sobre todo STAYIN A LIVE. Fiebre de Sábado.. Todas todas son increíbles.. Espero con ansias este documental de conocer sus vivencias.. Ojalá sea muy pronto.. BRAVO BEE GEES.!!!!

    The Bee Gees are so immensely talented and their true story is remarkable. There are movies coming out on the big screen about Elton John and the Beatles. I do not think this will be in movie theaters. Their true story deserves to be on the big screen-it is a story that has everything, and their musical legacy deserves that kind of treatment. The Bee Gees are so underrated, and their songs need to to survive for future generations to hear. I hope fans will not be disappointed and frustrated by this production. Documentaries that do a good job of relating their story already exist on You Tube. I want to see something that is worthy of their musical journey from childhood through five decades of musical excellence.
